My baby boy’s first birthday is fast approaching and I just can’t believe how fast this year has flown by. My experience with my older two daughters has taught me just how precious those first few months are. But despite my best efforts to simply savour every minute of his newborn deliciousness, the unrelenting pace – of school runs, after school clubs, homework, meals to prepare… in between feeds, nappy changes and, above all, paralysing sheer and utter exhaustion – meant that many days ended up blending into one hazy blur. Luckily, my phone is bursting with photos to jog my memory of those early chaotic days of my son’s life (how did we ever survive without our smart devices?!).
If I wasn’t feeling so sleep deprived right now the sight of that ball of squidgy cuteness would be enough to make me broody all over again…. Shhh… Don’t tell the hubby!!!
